Echo Traverse (4/22-23)- an extremely easy and scenic traverse to start the Sierra season! The postholing was knee deep in a lot of places and I was stupid enough to not bring snowshoes.

First Alaska trip for 2017 down. Back in Anchorage. Managed to top out the Mooses tooth via "ham and eggs" with Mountain Madness. Perfect weather and found the route in fairly good condition despite warm temps. Hoping the next couple trips into the range this year go just as smooth.

Pamir mountains of kyrgyzstan are not still a frequent destination of climbing expeditions, at least in Europe. So the environment is still very wild and Rocky, characterized by massive walls." gianni ghiglione speaks of the expedition carried out in the summer of 2016 and the new line on the west wall of small asan.
